Amazing views of the Snowy Range from the southeast. I think I took 50 pictures the first time I hiked it. 1.7 miles up to the saddle +1.7 miles back to the trailhead equals 3.4 miles total, out and back. The option exists to loop over Medicine Bow Peak for an extra 6 miles or so…
Easy access and easy parking leads to my only nitpick – it can be a bit crowded on the trail.
